Aurora Sievert is one of the top speeder bike pilots around. Her speeder is the Hurricane III. Known for its minimal design which makes it super fast, although not the safest vehicle. This Lego Figure is created by Eero Okkonen, and called “Aurora Sievert and Hurricane III.” The figure was built first and the end result ended up with a lot of style. The blue and yellow color theme looks great with the red and orange highlights. The design for Aurora was inspired by a Lego windshield and solar panel which would become her shirt. The figure has a bunch of interesting stuff incorporated into it, you can find Lego tires used for ankles, blue and yellow flame pieces make great hair, and a pair of Lego Minifigure hands for eyes. The Hurricane was built afterwards to match Aurora’s design. The speeder bike was inspired by the film, Laputa. Some of the pieces are from the themes Aquazone, Ninjago, and Fabuland. This speeder does not look easy to fly, so a complex weave of hoses and tubes hold Aurora for safety.
In the science fiction series The Expanse, a group of main characters find themselves in possession of the Rocinante. Previously known as the Donnager, a small warship built by the Martian Congressional Republic Navy (MCRN). The Expanse has a bunch of unique spaceship designs, almost all of which are clunky purpose built machines. This Lego version of the Rocinante is created by Kevin J. Walter. It features the grey color scheme used to hide the ships origins. A lot of the little details have been preserved converting it down to this small scale. Including communications gear (Lego walkie-talkies), the various cannons and PDCs (the little Minifigure roller skates add a lot of detail), and the giant engine (the Minifigure hands are a great detail). This Lego build has a lot of creative part use, check out some of those complicated shapes in the hull. A little hard to see as the flat grey appearance hides a lot of the details, as intended.
Westworld is an interesting show. The robots that exist in the park are incredibly lifelike. So human that even the people behind the scenes have a hard time identifying robot from human. The show goes into great detail on how these mechanical people are created. Robot arms work endlessly to print muscle and tissue, bit by bit. The milky white bodies make for a very artistic image. The problem is that the show also goes to great lengths to not show how these Westworld Robots work. How do their white bodies end up looking like flesh? What is their power source? This Lego MOC is a recreation of the iconic scene in the opening credits. “Westworld Host Printing” is created by Mitch Phillips. The figure in the circle is an especially impressive build. Almost as complicated as printing a real robot. You can see a lot of Lego pieces, such as horns, clips, robot harms, teeth and bones. Maybe it is a tiny Power Functions motor operating these bots?
Ready the cannons! Unfurl the solar energy sails! Captain Ira is in command of the Luna Praedo, a Lego space pirate ship created by Alex Fojtik. Also known as the Moon Robber, this ship will attack and board any spaceships it can catch. This Lego MOC comes with a whole back story, which is one of the great things about Lego. It can really get your imagination going. This spaceship takes the term ship literally, and comes equipped with huge deck mounted cannons, 13 side mounted cannons, and about a million more guns mounted all over. The sleek design works well and it looks both futuristic and archaic at the same time. Almost like something from a cartoon or video game. The transparent green, black, and gray color design is a great call back to the Lego theme Blacktron.
Darth Vader made a huge impression back in Star Wars: A New Hope, leading an assault against the Tantive IV. The Rebels try to mount a defense and protect Princess Leia, but they are no match against the Empire. This opening scene is so iconic, it makes a reappearance almost 40 years later in Rogue One. This Hallway Battle Lego MOC is created by CozzD. The interior hallway walls look great when lit from above by bright white lights. The iconic doorway has been recreated here too, and includes one well placed sticker. The Rebels look ready to defend it to the end, but as you can see below it doesn’t go well for them.
Grab your portal gun and run. In Rick and Morty it is revealed that there are infinite worlds that also have alternate dimensional versions of Rick and Morty. As told in the episode “Close Rick-counters of the Rick Kind.” This Lego MOC of Rick and Morty is the work of MadLEGOman. There must be a dimension out there where everyone and everything is made out of Lego. And their Rick and Morty might just look like these two. The two Lego figures are fully articulated, and can hold many poses. Morty is is made out of submarine propeller housing pieces, and has Minifigure legs for fingers. Rick has a brick built lab jacket and comes with a portal gun. One thing that is easy to overlook is that these figures are a lot taller than at first glance. Ricks head alone is about the size of a fist. These two are ready for some weird adventures.
There are so many Lego Robots out there. And many many more come into being every day. There are so many ways to build them. Big or small or really small? Sleek or complicated? This Lego Robot is called DoodleBot, and it is small and sleek. Created by Ivan Martynov, who specializes in weird mechanical beings. What makes DoodleBot stand out is the armor plating. The big curvy shapes have been matched and put together surprisingly well. Underneath all that armor is a complicated build or joints and connectors. The metal tube arms and legs are wonderfully retro. All of which is supporting a unique head. The 1×1 transparent orange bulbs make great eyes, and the Lego Minifigure ratchets works well as antennas.
Forbidden Planet is a classic science fiction film from 1956. The film had a character that for its time, was one of the most unique robots. This Lego “Robby The Robot” is based on that character, and is built by j-p-30. This robot is completely built out of official Lego pieces. Lots of hoses and tires went into this build. The technique of folding a tire inside-out is used here for the lower torso area. The smoothness breaks up the tire tread texture from the legs. Giving the robot more contrast between its parts. The glass dome is a Lego cockpit filled with all sorts of tiny pieces to recreate the mechanical face and brain. A few custom stickers helps to lend detail to the control panels. These retro robots would prove popular in all sort of movies, tv, and toys.
There are so many different types of Terminator robots. You have the tank version, a bunch of different android versions, some are made out of liquid metal or nanomachines, and some are a mix of all the different versions. Now we have a Lego Terminator. This deadly T-800 Terminator was built by Aaron. The finished model is over 500 pieces. Which is enough to give it an amazing range of movement. The articulation in the arms and legs (neck and hands too) gives it a lot of different ways to pose for display. The Lego MOC robot has some fun details. The piston/shocks in the chest area, all the tubes and hoses look great, the red center of each eye, and the pipe based chrome dome looks good. Another great detail is the light tan 1×1 round plate, and the 1×1 round plate with no stud, the two combined create rather believable teeth. I wonder if this Lego Terminator takes a shotgun blast to the chest, if it could rebuild itself? One brick at a time.
This Lego Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) build is the creation of Chris Doyle. The scene features the host Mike, and the robot Gypsy. The original television show started in 1988, and continues on (in some form) today. A human and a few robots are aboard the spaceship The Satellite of Love, and are forced to take part in an experiment: to see what happens to humans when forced to watch terrible movies. This scene feature Mike, the second human host to take part in the experiment. This Lego build depicts the moment between bad movies, when Mike and the robots are getting into all sorts of wacky situations. Mike is a great caricature and looks very animated. Check out those Lego hands, the solution for thumbs works well. Gypsy the purple robot is instantly recognizable. In another photo, you can see Cambot is also hanging around, and a mirror is used to show off the design. An excellent use of a Lego tire. Will Lego Mike Nelson ever finish the experiment, or will he finally escape?
